A note about serious food allergies

How did we not think of this before? We've brought you plenty of shrimp and plenty of noodles and plenty of Chinese dishes, but never a straight-up no-thrills-besides-the-delight-on-the-tongue shrimp lo mein before. Consider this a grave oversight on our part that we're rectifying right away. Noodles, shrimp, carrots, peanuts, bok choy… well, we were once blind, but now we see… and can't wait to taste. Tip: Bok choy can retain some grit, even after washing. To completely clean, hold upside down in a bowl of water. Shake slightly to release the grit.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve lime lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Coarsely chop peanuts. Peel and mince shallot. Pat shrimp dry, and season all over with a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Noodles

    Once water is boiling, add noodles and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes. Reserve ½ cup noodle cooking water. Drain noodles in a colander and set aside. While noodles cook, cook shrimp.

  3. 3

    Cook the Shrimp

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables and Sauce

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil, matchstick carrots, shallot, and bok choy to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 5-7 minutes. Stir in shrimp, noodles, satay sauce, 2 tsp. lime juice, sweet chili sauce, and half the noodle cooking water until combined and warmed through, 2-3 minutes. If sauce is too thick, add additional noodle cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner.
